Teaching since:

Hello! My name is Regina and I am passionate about teaching music!
I have been teaching private lessons since 2012 and love helping my students grow in ability and confidence! I went to the University of South Carolina and earned a Bachelors in Music Education, where I majored in piano and minored in trumpet. I also have earned a Masters in Education (Curriculum and Instruction) from Columbia International University (in conjunction with USC).
I believe that each student is unique and should be treated as such, both in the setting of achievable goals and the speed at which information is learned. No two student is the same, but each is a musician in his or her own right!
I look forward to helping you reach your music learning goals!

Regina's teaching technique helped my son understand the music concept and he was able to play his first songs...he is so excited. He can't wait until his next session.
